Ballyhoura Development CLG

Ballyhoura Development is a community led local development company, working to support communities, families, individuals and business.  

It is a partnership of community & voluntary sector, social partners and public and elected representatives.  Its operational area is the Ballyhoura Area, a dispersed rural area with a total population of 78,191 (density 41.8 persons per sq. km), with 54 local communities. The nearest urban centres are Limerick and Cork which are respectively 40 km and 60km from Ballyhoura’s headquarters in Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. Historically the area has had a high dependence on agriculture and a corresponding underdevelopment of the industrial, commercial and professional services sectors.

The company manages EU and National programmes and projects e.g. The Rural Development Programme (LEADER), The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP), Rural Social Scheme (RSS), Tús Scheme, Local Training Initiatives (LTI’s) and The Towards Occupation Programme - and brokers mainstream funding with the aim of revitalising the rural area.
